Default Black SC

So, I managed to get some Wrinkle Finish paint, to do my new supercharger (ugly bitch) and make it much better looking...plus increase the surface area for more cooling.
Masking took the longest, I left the pulley on there for something to hang onto...Dont worry, it was packed with cloth so the paint wouldnt touch the seal or input shaft..i got right to the tip of the SC as well..no issues there.
I had a run on the nose cone...yuk..but as long as it works great..i think i can live with it.

Take note of the bearing grease in each bolt hole. The paint will not stick in there.
I also applied grease on each mating surface..aka rotor plate to housing..nose cone to rotor plate..so the paint would NOT get in there.

See how it wrinkled differently on the inside corners? That'* one of them things that takes practice, but it may cure more than you see already as well.

I wanna see finished pics, teaser-boy. Or better yet, INSTALLED pics.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have enough superchargers around here to power a fleet. If I could find them when I needed them.

PICS, *******.
